Confucius

To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short.

Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles.

Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.

Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.

Respect yourself and others will respect you.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.

Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

No matter where you go – there you are.

The real fault is to have faults and not to amend them.

We should feel sorrow, but not sink under its oppression.

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.

No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.

While you are not able to serve men, how can you serve spirits [of the dead]?…While you do not know life, how can you know about death? What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.
